In edrence $1 SO •• ■* etz month*, “ 75 Frontburg, Jnne 18, 1880. Found—A crass key. The owner my here it by inquiring at this office. "A BOUSING temperance meeting" is reported at Barton Thursday evening. Th* reports of Mine Inspector Brown are received with favor both by the companies and miners. Oub coal business is getting much depressed. Some of the mines on George's Creek are running half time; others idle altogether^ The inside plane in the Potomac mine at Barton fell in Sunday or Sun der Bight last. Only one day's min ing coal has been done since. Attention is called to the adver tisement of George W. Russell, in another column, who is now ready to repair all kinds of Sewing Machines. Eubeka Mines.—Mr. Thomas W. Neff, of Eckbart, has opened up the Eureka mine on his properly, which is said to contain as good coal as can be found on George’s Creek. Tee Bowery folks manifested their approval of the nominations at Chica go Tuesday evening by a huge bon fire located in their quarter of our great corporate quadrilateral. A smabh-up of coal cars took place on the 0. & P. R. R. at Borden Shaft Tueeday afternoon. The passenger train was delayed several hours in consequence. Joseph Whetstone's oew was in the way, started all the trouble, and got killed. Mining Affaibs.— Blmn Avon mine is running on half and quarter time. Midlothian mine is working up to its full capacity. Small shipments are being made from the Johnson mine. The improve ments at this mine will be completed in a few days, when it is expected to work it up to ita full capacity. Death of an Old Citizen.—Wil liam Conrad, one of the oldest citizens county, died Monday last at the residence of his son, this place, in the 85tb year of his age. Mr. Con rad was a native of Huntingdon, Pa., but moved to this place when quite a young man. He married here and reared a large family of children, some of whom survive to mourn his loss. Probably Serious Affair.—Mr. Q. R. Cooper, of the Valley Timet, left for the east yesterday, to under go a surgical operation prescribed by Lonaconing physicians. Several weeks ago he injured himself by lift ing a heavy “form," from which he has suffered more or less ever since. We trust he will pass the ordeal safely. Another New Thing.—Mr. J. G. Wildman, of this place, whose new spring bed we referred to last week, is canvassing also for the sale of a six-wheel caster for sewing machinee —a neat, strong arrangement, that may be attached to any size or make of machine. They will move easily backward forward, or sidewise, or stand perfectly still if required. The price is two dollars. Do not fail to get a set when Mr. W. calls. Personal. —Rev. J. Ruhl, pastor of the Reformed Church, returned this week from attendance upon a session of the Olassisin Pennsylvania. Our friend, Mr. B. Berkebile, who filled the position of night operator at the telegraph office in West Newton, Pa., has teen transferred to Meyers dale, Pa., on the Baltimore and Ohio railroad. William R. Ooyner has gone east to purchase a stock of goods for the new store of Messrs. McMillan & Parker at Eokhart Mines. Robert Scott has sc far recovered from his late illness as to be able to resume his duties at the Furnace mine. Owing to the serious illness of Mr. Malcolm Sinclair's daughter, he has resumed his residence at Midlothian mine, hoping by a change from city to country life to restore her to health. Miss Ophelia Shaffer and Mr. Rupe ley Shaffer, of Appola, Fa., niece and nephew of Mrs. Thomas Humbertson, of this place, are sojourning with that lady. Mrs. Minnie Waterman, of Athens, Ohio, is at Mr. 0.8. Week's residence to spend the summer. Miss Nettie M. Smith of Jamestown, New Tork, is a guest of Mr. George A. Wingert. Untimely Death.—Mrs. Alice Johnson, wife of 001. Henry J.JJohn son, editor of the Cumberland Newt, died Wednesday evening, 9th inst., at SO years of age. The published no tices of the sad event refer to her as a lady of rare accomplishments and splendid virtues. An ornament to the high social circle in which she moved she was also the friend of the poor, among whom her death is tear fully deplored. But more than rela tive, friend, or beneficiary of her ten der ministrations, will her bereaved consort realize in full measure the stroke which has fallen. A few short months ago she linked her life with his, and during that brief period an angel walked and sat by his side. Naught is left now but to oherish her image in its grace and precious in ita beauty. More than this, perhaps—to believe that her pure spirit, vestured anew, still lingers along the ocean edge of time. Connubial ties, the netted filaments of heavenly fibre, will permit her to stay not far from where the pale waters beat, upon which rocks every frail human bark. With her the mystio sails have been folded; the epochal period of transla tion is past; it is tireless waiting now —to find in the restitution of all things the restoration of every sacred tie, the plenitude of renewed and everlasting communion, and the re ward of every pure love. To that touching hour time and nature are approaching; to her home every one she loved on earth, if they be true and faithful men and women, such as she would have them be, are going— a home whence no husband shall be far away on earth and no parent tot tering thither—where, when all are there, heaven shall bring its company to rejoice with her. And they shall walk and sit together again. The Coal Trade.—The shipments from the mines of the Cumberland coal region for the week ending Satur day June 5, were 45,982 tons, and for the year to that date 848,201 toss, an increase of 254,072 tons as compared with the corresponding pe riod of 1879. The shipments to the Baltimore and Ohio railroad were for the week, 21,221 tons; for the year, 582,453 tons, an increase of 212,490 tons as compared with 1879.

Both the plana and narrow guage road will be operated by ; steam. i This political community is indebt ; ed to Mr. Charles H.

James H. and Anna M. Ward, ex . eoutors of William Ward, deceased, settled their third and final account. We learn that a Cumberland read er of the Journal proposes a wager that "the town of Frostburg is the * largest pasture field in the county”— > that is to say, there are more cows at 1 large in this town than in any pasture field in the county. He might have i added that there is lees grass and it ■ is browsed closer in our limits than in , any field in the world. A oonse ’ quence is, we are constantly a vast i and fresh manure pile.
